I am pleased to join Andres in Barcelona to present on some of the methods we use in optical and opto-mechanical engineering on behalf of our customers.

ASE Optics leaders Christopher Cotton and Andres Cifuentes will each present a technical paper at SPIE Optical Systems Design conference in Barcelona, Spain November 26-29. In addition to presenting and exhibiting, Cifuentes and Cotton will meet with local technology companies to discuss optical engineering projects.

Cifuentes, the session chair for Optical Design & Engineering, will present on Software & Modeling on a numerical technique for ray-tracing diffraction in imaging systems with circular apertures. The technique’s potential use is in quick analysis to predict and correct early in the design process, and can take into account multiple aperatures. Cifuentes will discuss its use in designing an IR endoscope in the MWIR region.

Cifuentes states, “This modeling technique may improve the design process for systems where multiple aperatures and diffraction may be important. Some examples could be IR endoscopes or anamorphic optics limited by diffraction for laser beam shaping in newer laser diodes. Medical instrumentation made possible by these optics are really improving diagnoses based on imaging.”

Christopher Cotton, GM of ASE Optics, will also present a technical paper based on recent work, the design of a multi-point probe for a scanning low-coherence distance-measuring interferometer. Cotton will discuss a highly efficient method for splitting the probe beam produced by a scanning low-coherence distance-measuring interferometer (SLCDI). This method was used to produce custom instrumentation for a commercially available metrology system that measures conformal and freeform optics. ASE Optics designs and engineers custom metrology and instrumentation for customers in biomedical, commercial, scientific and defense industries.

Cotton states, “I am pleased to join Andres in Barcelona to present on some of the methods we use in optical and opto-mechanical engineering on behalf of our customers. We will be exhibiting, too, which gives me a chance to meet ASE Europe customers and learn more about their optical systems design needs.”

ASE Optics Europe offer a Discovery Service, 20 hours of engineering for €1950. The Discovery Service can determine feasibility, define a problem, or even identify a solution to a well-defined problem. ASE Optics Europe offers lens design, lens assembly design and engineering, prototyping, and small volume lenses and assemblies.

About ASE Optics Europe
ASE Optics Europe was founded to support European customers whose engineering teams are overburdened or short on optical engineering capability, and whose product development schedules and product performance can benefit from additional optical engineering resources. ASE Optics Europe sees “beyond the lens”—their optical engineers’ expertise is both deep and broad, crossing industries from security and defense to consumer electronics to medical devices.
